If your baby is suffering from colic and reflux, then it might be time to try investing in a different set of baby bottles. You’re going to need to find a bottle that has a venting system which reduces the amount of air bubbles in the milk. This review will help you find out if the Tommee Tippee Anti-Colic bottle is the right one for you and your baby.
Tommee Tippee Anti-Colic Bottle Review
Colic is unpleasant for both parents and babies. Your baby cries, fusses, and is often inconsolable. That’s when parents may want to consider buying anti-colic bottles, which help prevent excessive air from being swallowed with milk. Swallowing air may cause extra gas which contributes to a baby’s colic (1).
The Tommee Tippee anti-colic set comes with two 5-ounce bottles, each with several pieces – the bottle, the cap, the nipple, a nipple ring and an insert.
- The tube and valve system cut back on the air in your baby’s milk to help with colic.
- The venting tube will change color if the milk is warmer than 98 degrees to protect your baby against scalding.
- So many parts and the insert is especially intimidating.
- There should be a small slit in the cap at the end of the venting tube, but some of the bottles don’t have the slit.

Tommee Tippee First Feed Bottles Review
Preemies have special needs – what works for a larger or full-term baby won’t work for them. This bottle, with its extra slow flow nipple, was specifically designed for preemies and newborns who are bottle feeding with expressed milk.
This bottle comes with six pieces, including a breast milk storage pot.
- The milk comes out very slowly for preemies.
- A venting valve, with the extra slow nipple, means your baby takes in less air.
- BPA and phthalate-free.
- Will work well for formula-fed babies too.
- A bit pricey for one bottle.
- Your baby will outgrow this nipple quickly.
Trying to find a bottle that will allow you to feed thickened formula or breastmilk to your baby is not an easy feat. Firstly, there simply aren’t that many on the market. And secondly, most of them have flow problems.
